TCNJ receives million-dollar gift


TCNJ officials are marveling and gushing this Valentine's Day because a secret admirer of the college has anonymously given a $1 million gift for its endowment.

Unlike the vast majority of sizable anonymous gifts that TCNJ and other colleges receive from donors whose names are known to school brass but not divulged publicly at the donors' request, this gift to TCNJ is courtesy of a benefactor whose identity is a mystery even to TCNJ President R. Barbara Gitenstein.


The  only strings attached to the money are that $750,000 of it be dedicated to the TCNJ endowment to fund scholarships for underrepresented groups and female students, she said. The other $250,000 has no donor-imposed restrictions on it, although that money will go into the endowment as well and much of its revenue likely will go toward scholarships also.
